Total Time: 15 min.

Juicy, flavorful chicken burgers are topped with a sweet and tangy sauce. Alfalfa sprouts offer a nice crunch to the final sandwich. Chili paste adds a nice medium spicy kick, which can be adjusted up or down depending on how much heat you enjoy.

Tip: If it’s not grilling season, make these under the broiler in your oven. Set the broiler to high and cook, turning once, until no longer pink in the center (3-4 minutes per side).
